This is not a movie for anyone... It is not one of those movies that we see in the "Magic Cinema" were everything is beautiful. It has a very cruel and realistic way of showing the effects of prostitution, and the rotten world that we are living in. If you think that you have problems see this movie and your life will seam like paradise. It has a beautiful and fantastic interpretation of Ana Moreira. It is very well filmed and all the timings of shooting are just perfect. Teresa Villaverde at her best with this window of the cruel world. See it with your brains and not your eyes. After this movie your life just wont be the same.
